Programs  

Preserving the Harvest
November 13, 2021
10 am to 3 pm


Join the Peter Wentz Farmstead in a time before supermarkets or refrigeration, before same-day delivery or curbside pick-up.  Winters were harsh in the 18th century, and unable to grow crops in the cold weather, families like the Wentzes needed to be prepared.  On November 13, enjoy meeting our living history interpreters as they demonstrate the various ways colonial farm families had to prepare and preserve their harvest for winter, including: open-hearth cooking, smoking meat, cider-pressing, and more! 

Masks are required indoors regardless of vaccination status, and are highly recommended outdoors.

All ages; FREE
